ADAMS, MA — Park Street will be closed to traffic and packed with people while townsfolk, during the Susan B. Anthony Celebration, honor a hero who was born in their midst.

The street fair will run from noon to 8 p.m. Saturday on Park Street, from the statue of President William McKinley south to the Town Common, where the new statue of Susan B. Anthony stands.

The Adams Theater will host an open house, an opportunity to see the early stages of the revival of the downtown theater. At 5 p.m., a free performance at the theater will feature Sheryl Faye performing an educational and entertaining multimedia show highlighting the life of Susan B. Anthony.

Lawn chairs are encouraged for the performance in the theater, as seating has not yet been installed in the performance space.

“We couldn’t be more delighted that the new owner of the Adams Theater will be hosting this portrayal of the life of Susan B. Anthony,” said Christine Hoyt, a member of the Adams Select Board and volunteer with the Adams Suffrage Centennial Celebration Committee.
